It's a 20-minute drive down a gravel/dirt/sand road (or a 21-minute bike ride!) to arrive at La Picazon right on the beach on the Sea of Cortez, so you really have to want to go there. But, if you do, you'll be rewarded with friendly, upscale service and some of the best seafood dishes in Loreto (actually, it's 6 miles outside of town).

My husband ordered the shrimp wrap and it was pretty amazing, really luscious. I had the catch of the day, Parrot Fish a la Picazon, a buttery broth of white wine with thinly sauteed onion.

We were barely able to finish the meal, but our server insisted that if we didn't try her flan, we would always regret it. So, we ordered a serving to go. My husband is a flan aficionado and we both agreed, best Flan EVER!

The restaurant is directly on the beach with killer views of Isla del Carmen and her little sister, Isla Coronado. The backdrop of the Las Gigantas mountain range is pretty spectacular as well.

Plan to take your time and soak up the view.

NOTE: small dogs are welcome in the restaurant; larger dogs are not

On our way back from Coronado Island, our boat driver dropped us off on the beach in front of the restaurant and let us have lunch at La Picazon.
The location is absolutely beautiful.
The host was very kind.
The seafood was great! However, there are not many options if you do not like seafood.

For a great day, take a boat early to Isla Coronado to snorkel and hike. Then come here o the way back mid to late afternoon.

Made the dirt road drive one afternoon. Was a bit slow with our little rental car but worth it. Great location right on the water. Great seafood tacos and very friendly staff.

The most gracious hosts. Fantastic food, don't let the drive detour you from this place. You will tell all your friends about it. The chocolate clams are almost the best, actually the chocolate cake and the margarita tie for best.
